On Tribes Pt 1

I have  a feeling I will return to this again and again. The idea of community is a broad thing to me. A neighborhood almost as big. But tribes. Therein lies the power of people in concentrated form. Larger than family, not bound by blood, but not quite a whole community either. I see it, these days, as a word that defines gangs and clubs alike. Removing the stigma of a word like gang or club and you have a tribe. For me, this word exists in neutrality and promise. Musicians create tribes around themselves all the time. Mars Army and Moon babies, the people who congregate around sound seem to have their tribes so easily defined.
